Kevin D. Williamson, Asshole of the Day for September 30, 2014

by TheDailyEdge ()

Imagine being so “pro-life” that you think a woman should face the death penalty for aborting a fetus. 

Imagine being so, so “pro-life” that “logically” you think the doctors and nurses who abort a fetus—even to save the life of a mother—should face the death penalty, too.

Imagine having thought it through so much that, like National Review writer Kevin D. Williamson, you even have your preferred method of “pro-life” execution—hanging—already decided.

Worth noting: Williamson writes for a publication that likes to bill itself as: “America’s most widely read and influential magazine and web site for conservative news, commentary, and opinion.” Keep that in mind when you read the moronic Kevin D.Williamson-penned bullshit the National Review is now publishing.

Williamson’s latest article was his attempt to respond to a Lena Dunham blog post encouraging women to vote. His piece, “Five Reasons Why You’re Too Dumb to Vote… (Reason 1: You get your politics from Lena Dunham)” prompted a quick backlash. Things started rolling downhill faster when Williamson began explaining his penis-based expertise to, among others, Charles Johnson of the blog Little Green Footballs on Twitter: https://twitter.com/Green_Footballs/timelines/516292560310923264

NOTE: Tea Party Cat and I hadn’t started Asshole of the Day back in 2012 when Williamson told women to vote for Mitt Romney because his male-producing sperm was superior to Barack Obama’s, which only produces girls.

And Williamson lost out to Rush Limbaugh on August 13, despite calling a 9-year-old black boy a “primate” in another National Review piece.

That means this is his first, well-deserved appearance as Asshole of the Day.

I have often wondered why I am affected so much by the moon from three days before full moon to a few days after. The magnetotail provided me with the perfect explanation; as the moon charges up when within the tail and becomes much more electrical and magnetic, it is only normal that this increase in power should be felt on Earth.
We all know from astrology that each of the planets, and the sun and moon, have an influence on our feelings, emotions and consciousness. The moon affects our emotions because the moon influences water; just as the moon causes the tides, it exerts a pull on the watery components of our body, and we feel this as emotions. The body is made up of 70 to 80% of water.
Human consciousness is also affected by sun spots and the mass ejections from the sun’s corona; these are what cause the solar winds of magnetic energy which affect the Earth’s upper atmosphere and give rise to the Aurora Borealis or Northern Lights.
I feel it is beneficial if we extend our awareness to take in all these influences of the celestial bodies, as they all communicate with, and have an influence on, each other by the transfer of electrical and magnetic energy – which could also be called consciousness.
Our body has a field of energy – the aura – which is the same as the aurora or magnetic and gravitational field of the planet. We are all One, a part of the Universal Life Force; and it is natural to be aware of the greater cosmic system, which is as much a part of our consciousness as our brain is.
As human consciousness evolves and moves from the individual awareness to an awareness of greater integration within the whole cosmic system, we also expand our understanding of the unity of life and develop a love of all things, in the realization that We Are All One.

Telling your son not to “be such a girl” lets his sister who overhears the conversation know that being a girl is not a good thing and she should be sorry and ashamed of herself.

It also reminds your son that being a boy is better than being a girl and therefore he is better than any girl he will ever meet.

In russian if you cry you get called a cabbage. Vote to change “dont be such a girl to “dont be such a cabbage” say I.
